Could not have been more perfect

Reviewed on 10/19/2013 Anna

I looked at reviews for at least a dozen different bakeries in the St. Louis area, and visited a couple. My dad is a chef and he recommended one place, but it seemed kind of boring. My next stop was The Cakery Bakery. The instant my mom and I walked in, we were greeted by one of... Read More the owners and treated with courtesy and friendliness. The prices were more than fair and the options for decorations were nearly boundless. These people do traditional, whimsical, romantic, you name it. On top of all that, we sampled a bunch of their flavors, and I've got to tell you, they make the best wedding cake I've ever tasted! We got a simple, three-tiered vanilla buttercream cake with vanilla buttercream frosting that we had them do "plaster"-style instead of smooth. They didn't try to up-sell and they were very attentive to our preferences. On the big day, the cake was perfect. I would recommend The Cakery to anyone!

Wait a year for the top tier -- we couldn't wait more than a week!

The Cakery was wonderful to work with and our wedding cake was DELICIOUS -- so delicious, in fact, that when we got back from our honeymoon, we pulled the top tier (which the venue had to hide so that it wasn't devoured) out of the freezer. We had a specific design in mind and... Read More brought in a picture - the cake that they designed to emulate the picture was even more attractive than the picture that we gave to them. They also made two very cute penguin cake toppers for us out of fondant. Deciding which flavor of cake to choose was the most difficult -- in the end, because we couldn't decide we ended up having a tier of red velvet, a tier of strawberry, and a tier of lemon (our favorite).

The Cakery Takes the Cake!

We went to several bakeries when we were looking for a wedding cake vendor (this is one of the fun parts of planning for a wedding). Most of them were OK or above average, but The Cakery rose above the rest. Their bakery is clean and has a professional look to it. They are... Read More willing to work with you to incorporate any custom designs or ideas that you may have. However, the best part of this place is, of course, the cakes! They have some of the best wedding cake I have ever tasted. Just try the lemon cake! Granted, The Cakery is more expensive than some of the other bakeries in town. However, you get what you pay for. Go with The Cakery. You won't be disappointed.

One word: PHENOMENAL! There was literally a mad rush for cake by our guests at our wedding. We got three different flavors for variety, and we're pretty convinced that most people ate all three kinds. We initially thought we ordered too many servings for the number of...

Wow! Our vendors, who eat a lot of wedding cake, asked where we got our cake. That's how good it was.

Before booking with The Cakery, we had booked another STL baker to our wedding cake. After that unnamed baker "ghosted" us, we were desperate to find a new baker in a short amount of time. The Cakery was a perfect solution and took care of absolutely everything. The day of our... Read More wedding, the cake looked better than I had imagined, was delivered on time, was absolutely delicious, and took the midwest, July heat at our outdoor reception incredibly well. For anyone getting married in the St. Louis/St. Charles area, I would advise you leave it to the professionals and hire The Cakery.

We decided to plan our wedding in 30 days...crazy yes, but we went for it. Almost 2 weeks into the planning we decided to go for the wedding cake.
